Workers Who Could Be Impacted: Out-of-Work Angelenos Interested in Becoming Community Health Workers and Contact Tracers
Agenda Item Number 19: “Continued Consideration Of Ad Hoc On COVID-19 Recovery and Neighborhood Investment Committee Report relative to a hiring plan for a Community Care Corps, to fill gaps in our health care system as well as provide meaningful employment to residents who need it.”
This agenda item dates back to a Motion made on June 9, 2020 by Councilmember Herb Wesson, Jr. (10th District) and Seconded by Council President Nury Martinez (6th District). The motion was referred to the Ad Hoc On COVID-19 Recovery and Neighborhood Investment Committee which held a Special Meeting on June 17, 2020 and moved to approve the Motion’s recommendations and forward to the City Council for its consideration.
Due to the economic impact of COVID-19 and pursuant to the Motion, the June 30, 2020 agenda item calls for the Council to “Instruct the Economic and Workforce Development Department and the Personnel Department with assistance from the City Administrative Officer and Chief Legislative Analyst, to work with the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, to solicit input from community groups and non-profits and report back with a public/private, New Deal style hiring plan for a Community Care Corps, to fill gaps in our health care system as well as provide meaningful employment to residents who need it.”
We hope these updates are helpful to you.
